5 stars The ultimate one-song album.

Thick as a brick was my second meeting with Jethro Tull, and it blew me away. I have listen to it often for many years and I still havent got bored of it.

Thick As A Brick" is Jethro Tull in top form, so tight and complex as if the band itself is one single entity. JT went over the prog deep end with this album, embracing the prog sound with magnificent results. The music itself is very folky at parts reminiscent of Aqualung, but it goes far beyond the simpler folk tracks of that album, using a lot of classical influences.

Ian Anderson's voice, and especially on this album, pulls you in...vocalists rarely reach the dramatic or charismatic level that Ian Anderson is on, not to mention his excellent flute.It's even better because each musician here gets a chance to shine, and of course there are top-notch players here, Barre's great lead guitar, Barlow's energetic grooves, Hammond's spidery basslines, and Evan's organs switch and blend beautifully, weaving through intense and beautiful melodies throughout the entire piece

Everything about this record is perfect, from the concept to the music and the accompanying visual realisation.

A truly essential album to any prog fans collection.
